Once again it is time for an update of what is happening in the garden. With my laptop out of action last month, I’ve missed quite a bit. We are in the height of summer now, and the grass in the paddocks is dry and yellow. In the garden we are busy as always.
The pumpkins have been planted down near the pig pen again this year. We have only just finished eating last years bumper crop.
The amount of vegetables we have been harvesting is slowly increasing, and in the next month we will be picking vegetables in earnest.
We have already pulled about half of the onions, with the rest hopefully coming out in the next week.
We are having problems with earwigs. They are eating holes in everything. So far we have tried containers with oil and oatmeal to attract them, wet newspaper which they crawl into (and then we throw in the bin), and tomato dust. Has anyone got some other ideas of safe methods to use?
At this time of year we are always watering, weeding and mulching. It is definitely busy!
